Nason Ridge

Nason Ridge is a strenuous, 14 mile round trip cross country ski or snowshoe trip with 1,500 ft in elevation gain. The trail climbs steadily with views of the Chiwaukums and Stuart Range at the ridge crest.

Getting there

Drive to the Kahler Glen Golf & Ski Resort or Nason Ridge Sno-Park.

Snowshoe Route

This route is adjacent to groomed cross-country ski trails, but the Nason Ridge Trail is ungroomed.  Follow the trail uphill through stands of Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir, opening up to views of Lake Wenatchee and Dirtyface Mountain.  At 3,200 ft you will reach the end of the ungroomed trail and intersect the groomed trails.  Look for "Big Red" one of the largest Ponderosa Pines in the area, watching over the lake.
